YAQUIS THE STORY OF A POPULAR STRUGGLE

A 60-MINUTE FILM ABOUT THE LONGEST-RUNNING ARMED STRUGGLE IN MEXICO’S HISTORY.
In this 60-minute film, the Mexican writer, novelist and political activist Paco Taibo II travels to the territory of the Yaqui Peoples to remember the longest-running armed struggle in Mexico’s history (1867-1909.

A righteous struggle that was dragged to its end, in Paco Taibo’s own words, through a malignant ten year program of “Systematic military destruction” that used “multiple mechanisms of violence, torture, mass murder [and] enslavement of a community.”
